Sensitive and private
Cancer's symbol is the Crab ... for good reasons. Crabs travel around wearing a hard outer shell -- to protect their soft interior. The same with Cancer people -- Cancer Suns, Cancer Moons, Cancer Rising. In self-defense, Cancers look a lot harder on the outside than they are. Inside, they're big softies.
They also carry an invisible shell, a safe inner space where they go when wary or threatened ... or if they need a break from the hassle of life. They watch cautiously from this private place the people and events around them.
If something interesting happens, they may come out to get a look. Otherwise, they've got their home-away-from-home they carry with them ... and they may not venture out of it for days.
